ASTM WK45280

    Revision of F2907 - 14 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Sling Carriers

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2907 - 14b

    Developed by Subcommittee: F15.21 | Committee F15 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    As discussed during the fall 2013 subcommittee meeting, the current Occupant Retention test criteria (section 6.3) are not accurately separating good ring slings from poorly-constructed ring slings. (Good being defined as those that have been sold into the US market for a decade or more and have performed well for consumers without incidents.)
